I.T. Productions, LLC v. Doe 1 et al
MINUTE ORDER granting in part and denying in part plaintiff's 10 Motion for Extension of Time by Judge Thomas S. Zilly.(RS)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
I.T. PRODUCTIONS, LLC,
The following Minute Order is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable
Thomas S. Zilly, United States District Judge:
Plaintiff’s motion to extend the deadline for effecting service, docket
no. 10, is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part as follows. Plaintiff requests an
additional 120 days to send “multiple written notices” to potential defendants in an
attempt to conduct further discovery and/or reach a resolution of the claims at issue, and
if unsuccessful in the latter endeavor, to obtain waivers of service or effect service if
necessary. Plaintiff asserts that potential defendants are “sensitive to being identified” in
the lawsuit, but shows no concern for potential defendants’ rights to be timely served and
to have judicial oversight relating to discovery. Moreover, plaintiff’s explanation
concerning why the Internet Service Provider at issue did not receive until February 10,
2017, the subpoena authorized by the Court on December 22, 2016, is vague and does not
clearly deny plaintiff’s or its attorney’s role in the delay. The Court is satisfied that
plaintiff can and should effect service by April 15, 2017, which is 150 days from the date
this action commenced.
The Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Minute Order to all counsel of
Dated this 1st day of March, 2017.
